Bowl Inn Bristol
This traditional English pub is steeped in history. Three cottages, erected in 1146 to house monks building the adjacent church of St Mary the Virgin, form parts of this whitewashed stone inn. In later years, tunnels were created between these cottages, the church and priory (now a house) to give protection against marauding foreign invaders.
The Bowl became a licensed inn in 1550 and nowadays offers superb accommodation, excellent food, fine wines and real ales. The guest rooms are comfortable and well appointed. A cooked or continental breakfast is served in the bar area.
